‘Reassembled, Slightly Askew’ is an autobiographical live art piece. In 2008, Yee became critically ill with a rare brain infection which led to several life-changing surgeries, followed by years of recovery and finally reintegration back into society with a hidden disability. As part of her recovery Shannon decided to share her story with audiences.
The show takes audience members on a unique and immersive theatrical experience. They lie in a hospital bed, wearing an eye mask and headphones, under supervision by a nurse – as if with Yee on her journey toward reassembling her life.
